Glowing Water Recipe for Kids

Materials
Method
  • Making glow water is simple! All you need are non-toxic yellow highlighters and water. Pop the back off of the marker and pull out the ink soaked felt that is inside.

  • Then run the ink-soaked felt under a small stream of water with a container underneath to catch it.

  • Squeeze the felt as the water runs over it to get all of the coloring out of the highlighter.

 I used roughly 6 cups of water per highlighter and ended up with insanely bright glow water!  Yellow highlighters make such a BRIGHT glowing water, and there are so many fun ways to use this water in play.

I tried to make glow water using every other color highlighter that I had on hand, and none of them glowed.  I was so disappointed, as some of the highlighters would glow in the black light when you used them to write, but then the water would not glow.

Make your own colored sand- so easy and so much cheaper than the store bought stuff!  Only 2 ingredients!
Make your own aqua sand- this stuff is SO COOL! Kids can build underwater castles and sea sculptures, and the sand comes out of the water DRY!
STICKY SAND: Mold it, build it, & CONTAIN IT! This sand acts wet, but it isn't! It sticks together well, but it does not stick to skin. My kids love this stuff, and I love the less-messy alternative to traditional play sand!
